The inaugural ICC World Test Championship (WTC) Final between Team India and New Zealand will begin 30 minutes before the scheduled time in Southampton from today.
The match was scheduled to begin at 3.30pm IST like all Tests in England, but will now start at 3pm IST .
Notably, the WTC Final was shifted from the Lord's in London to the Ageas Bowl in Southampton as the ground's facility has hotel accommodation to guarantee a bio-bubble.
The Indian cricket team announced its playing eleven yesterday, naming both off-spinners Ravichandran and Ravindra Jadeja. India plays five bowlers. Seamers Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami have been picked ahead of Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj for the one-off Test.
New Zealand are yet to announce their team for the fixture even though captain Kane Williamson said everybody is fit and available for selection.
